50-year-old Eric Dion Warren stepped into a bank in Wolfforth, Texas in the summer of 2019. He then put a bag and a note on the desk. The note read, “This is a robbery. Try to joke on me and you will die. I want $ 10,000 (€ 8,350) in $ 50 and $ 100 notes, now you have one minute, otherwise I’ll kill you.
Warren made it there according to the American news channel CBS also a weapon out. The desk clerk obeyed and gave him the money. She did put 20 dollar bills with registered serial numbers in the bag. Warren then drove the test car back to the car dealer. There he literally waved the money and paid an advance of $ 3,000 ($ 2,500).
In the meantime, an employee of the dealer was called with the news of the robbery. The description of the BMW used in the robbery matched exactly the car Warren wanted to buy. The employee called the police, who shortly afterwards arrested Warren. The police were sure that Warren was the culprit, because the serial numbers on his notes matched those of the bank. The weapon the robber used turned out to be a painted air gun.
